After the successfull campaign of MEC Proof of Concepts (PoC), ETSI ISG MEC has developed the MEC Deployment Trial Framework (MDT).

The goal of MDTs is to demonstrate the viability of MEC in commercial trials/deployments and to provide feedback to the standardization work.

How does it work

The MEC Deployment Trial Framework is proposes the same process as for PoCs. The MEC Deployment Trial framework will describe the process and criteria that a MEC Deployment Trial demonstration must adhere to.

MDT proposal can be submitted by a MDT team consisting of a minimum 2 different stakeholder members among network operator, infrastructure provider and content/application provider. MDT proposals are expected to be deployed/tested in running commercial network.

The MDT is expected to be deployed in a commercial network relying on the principles of the MEC reference architecture and interfaces as much as applicable for the demonstrated use case.

MDT Team

In particular, the MDT Team will have at a minimum 2 different stakeholder members among:

  • network operator;
  • infrastructure provider;
  • content/application provider.

The MDT Point of Contact is an ISG MEC Member or an ISG MEC Participant. The MDT Proposal will address at least one of the PoC Topics listed on this wiki.


The MDT Team is expected to demonstrate their MDT proposal at a public event, e.g. Public Exhibition, ISG MEC meeting, or other events, by means outlined in the MDT proposal.

The MDT proposal will be uploaded on the ETSI Portal as a contribution to ISG MEC IEG and a link to the contribution sent to the following address:
